This article aims to establish the state of the art of motivation in work teams in the scientific literature. The research was of a descriptive type in which a bibliometric review scheme was adapted that includes the stages of recovery, migration, analysis, visualization, and interpretation of information. As a result, 59 research articles were obtained from which it stands out that the United States and China are the main scientific producers on the subject. Likewise, production has been constant and balanced in the 2018-2022 period, with research that mainly addressed aspects such as motivation, leadership, work teams, performance, and human talent, among others. Finally, research that addressed the consequences of motivation on the performance of work teams stands out, as well as the effect of leadership and other moderating variables on the motivation of people in work teams. It is expected that studies related to work teams will continue to grow, especially when work dynamics in today's organizations are strongly oriented towards the creation of competitive, high performance, autonomous, and self-regulated work teams.


Keywords – Motivation, work teams, leadership, performance, human resources.
